From X-Concepts the makers of Tech Deck, Modifiers, Citizen and other really cool stuff comes the Micro Icons. They are tiny little guys (and girls) but they are totally big on personality. Cool little figures including masters of martial arts, punks with attitude, commando war heroes, laid-back bikers and some cool brothers to bring things into perspective. Lots of detail, good paint jobs and great character...!

The Micro Icons series has to be seen to be believed. Each pack comes with four highly detailed figures. There are even some play sets that can be bought which also double as attractive stands for the little people to be displayed on.

The figures retail at £4 for each pack - which is £1 a figure. While that might sound a little pricey for such tiny figures, you've got to look at the attention to detail to appreciate that you are getting good value for money. The models are not only well sculpted, they have also been beautifully painted.

Getting figures like this to stand up is always a problem, but X-Concepts have come up with an ingenious way of keeping them upright. A small magnet has been inserted into one of the feet of each figure. So, as long as you are playing on a metal surface, your models will all stand up.

Souljahs: Pack 3 comes complete with Sweetz, Sharissa, Frederick and Mr Jones. Sweetz is the king of cool. Dressed in purple from head to toe, including a very fetching hat, he also carries a gold walking stick and a huge gold goblet; Sharissa is the hip girl on the block. Immaculately turned out in pink and blue, she's taking no nonsense from any of her peers; Frederick is a swot. Wearing shorts and braces, this geeky looking dude with nerdy glasses will certainly go far; and Mr Jones has a smile that everyone will fall for - cheeky and loveable.

The play sets for the Souljah's series include The Porch (which is the exterior to a shack, complete with railings) and The Spot (which is a brick wall and pavement, complete with rubbish bins).

Instantly collectible, these figures are sure to be a hit with children worldwide. The fact that there are plenty of different collections (commandos, bikers, souljahs, Kung-Fu and punks) ensures that there is something for all tastes.
